Moka Only - Concert for One [Stream/ Listen]
Don't miss out on listening to this talented artist's new release, Moka Only - Concert for One, that just came out on Sunday, September 3, 2017.
Moka Only’s latest album 'Concert for One,' has arrived via URBNET. As the follow up to his 2016 '12 for 12' opus, 'Concert for One' delivers with such admirable tenacity, something that fans are accustomed to from the powerhouse artist. Notably so, this full-length twenty-track album features a guest collaboration from Detroit’s own Dank (from Frank n Dank), and artwork from Montreal’s Vanessa Malo (Instagram: vnilla_art).
Daniel Denton is something of a super hero. An iconic artist in Canadian Hip-Hop, based out of Vancouver, performing musical feats under any one of his mysterious aliases. Guised as Ron Contour, Torch, or most notably, as Moka Only, his delivery is consistent and unmatched. He is an acclaimed underground champion, and a true storyteller with an unfathomable collection of stories to tell.
Moka works as a multi-faceted artist, and has been writing, producing, and creating relentlessly since the late nineties. He has celebrated acknowledgment through a 2015 WCMA rap recording of the year nomination, and three Canadian Urban Television nods. As Co-founder of the collective rap group Swollen Members, a name that Moka recalls, with tongue in cheek, coming up with while “…sitting in a Denny’s”, and “…because I liked the double entendre”, his successes garnered him Three Juno Awards, Seven Platinum Plaques, and Seven Muchmusic Video Awards. He has also collaborated with legends such as MF Doom, J Dilla, and Grand Puba, and has toured internationally with artists such as Tanya Morgan and ILLA J, only to name a few.
Fast-forward to 2016, a truly remarkable year for Moka, in which he continued to progress and expand his creativity. Released via URBNET, Moka gifted fans with his 12 for 12 project, a mammoth musical feat that saw him putting out one album every month, for the entire year. Each album curated from a palette of anecdotal quips, time hops, and relativity.
“I do them. I do songs”, Moka expresses. “They are mere
